A group of protesters who spent five hours holed up in the prime minister's Sydney office have been arrested for trespass.

The seven people, including six pastors and a nun, spent Monday afternoon praying and singing in Malcolm Turnbull's Edgecliff electorate office to protest against the government's lack of action in bringing refugees on Nauru and Manus Island to Australia.

Police arrived at the office around 5.30pm and waited for the group to finish an inter-faith service before making the arrests.
